Liverpool might see midfielder leave to join Pep Guardiola at City for free


According to the Daily Star, Liverpool midfielder Emre Can might move to Manchester City in the summer for free as his contract at Anfield is set to expire at the end of this season. There was speculation this summer that Italian Champions Juventus will snap him up for free as soon as he becomes available but according to the Daily Star report, source in Italy indicate that Manchester City are the front runners now.

Can is seen as a replacement for Yaya Toure at Manchester City, but still it is difficult to see how the German will get an significant game time at the Etihad. With a squad packed with attacking players and Pep Guardiola only playing a single defensive midfielder in his side, Emre Can has to fight with Fernandinho and Ilkay Gundogan for a single spot. A move to City might land him a good contract and size-able signing bonus but for the sake of his career, Can has to think twice before signing on the dotted line.
